§ Mr. Chetwynd
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what are the transitional receipts under the Local Government Act, 1958, for the years 1959–60, 1960–61, and 1961–62, in respect of the Borough of Stockton-on-Tees; and what is the cause of the change in payment.
§ Mr. Brooke
On the first provisional calculation, the council's receipts were 83W £90,194 for 1959–60 and £81,175 for 1960–61. On the second provisional calculation, they were £45,998 and £41,398, respectively, for those years, and will be £36,798 for 1961–62. The change in amount is due to the more up-to-date information supplied by local authorities for the second calculation.
